Director plus screenwriter Quentin Tarantino will travel to Beijing to
discuss his newest action flick with China Film Corp. I suspect this
one, which will be partially shot in China, is KILL BILL staring Uma
Thurma, Yuen Wo-ping and Sonny Chiba. Part of it will be shot in China.
There are millions reasons we should be excited by it. Tarantino wrote
TRUE ROMANCE, NATURAL BORN KILLERS, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN, and also penned
and directed RESERVOIR DOGS, PULP FICTION, JACKIE BROWN. KILL BILL was
wrote and will be directed Tarantino himself.
A Bruce Lee Biopic
Early this year, Andrew Davis, the man was on the director's seat of
UNDER SIEGE, THE FUGITIVE and the upcoming Arnold Schwarzenegger movie
COLLATERAL DAMAGE, has secretly traveled to China. He is working on a
new biopic of Bruce Lee.
THE MAGIC BRUSH
Miramax has picked up this CG animation based on a Chinese
fairytale. In the fiction wrote by Hong Xuntao, Ma Liang a young kid has
a magic brush pen, which can transform whatever he draw into the real.
He used the magic pen to fight the evil and help the weak. This project
will be handled by Hong Kong's
Centro Digital, which has
done CG works for THE STORM RIDERS, A MAN CALLED HERO, and SHAOLIN
SOCCER. Interestingly, Centro Digital has announced its own THE MAGIC
BRUSH, a 40 episode series. In 1955, Shanghai Animation Film Studio made
a stop motion animation THE MAGIC BRUSH based on the same story, which
won the first prize (for age 8 - 12) of the 8th Venice International
Children's Film Festival in 1956.
